This exquisite Tudor mansion was built in 1525 and is flowing with English history throughout the ages. Even Queen Elizabeth herself was charmed by her stay at Hengrave Hall. Today, this truly is one of the most stunning wedding venues in the country.
We are very proud to have a great working relationship with the team here, working closely with them for many years, providing our hire service for their client’s weddings. We are personally recommended here and their only exclusive supplier for both wedding DJ’s and lighting hire.
- Dreamwave DJ Services
One of our DJ’s can be booked to arrive and entertain you and your guests for your evening party in the Banqueting Hall. Whether you require the classic wedding party; a modern and funky alternative; or your own twist on the proceedings we will make sure that’s what will happen. All our DJ’s are experienced at filling the dancefloor and creating a fun atmosphere. Your DJ will play the correct style of music for the time of night along with reading the dancefloor and playing your selection of must plays. They also steer well clear of anything you really don’t want played. They know how to party!
We have 6 DJ’s in our team and more information about each of them and their styles can be found on our Blog ‘Spotlight On’.
The Banqueting Hall look And DJ Package
Your DJ will set up their decks and booth in front of the magnificent large stain glass window that can be lit-up in your choice of colour. You can choose the look of this to be our signature ‘decks on show’ set-up. This really brings the DJ into the party. Or should you require a more classic look, we have the traditional DJ booths available in black and white.
Also included in this package is: Up lighting of the walls in the Banqueting Hall to add extra colour and style; moving disco effects that project onto the dance floor from the Minstrels Gallery, adding atmosphere while you are all dancing, and of course a PA speaker system for your DJ to play through.
Other DJ Options
Cocktail DJ Service – Ideal for your afternoon drinks reception. Your DJ will set up a small PA system and his decks on The West Terrace, then DJ to suit the mood you wish to create. From classic summer time chill-out to down tempo live lounge versions of songs.
DJ Equipment Hire – We can provide the hire of equipment, if you are having a celebrity DJ or friend for you party, from our extensive hire stock. We can fulfill any DJ’s rider, stocking industry brands such as Pioneer, QSC and DAP.
- Dreamwave Lighting & Decor Services
Enhancing such a stunning venue is what we do best! Hengrave Hall and its grounds really help complement our extensive array of lighting and décor services. We have made it easy for you to look at the services we offer for the different locations around the venue by producing a designated online pricing brochure.
In the meantime, here are some ideas to get your creative thoughts flowing…
The West Terrace
Some great looks for this area can be fairy lighting around the Lavender borders. For a more dramatic look why not go for the festoon lit central walkway? You could try enhancing the lawn with some low level lawn lighting or up lighting of the 12 Yew trees with a wash of colour to match your wedding theme.
The Central Courtyard
The courtyard looks enchanting with our festoon lighting strings criss-crossing the Tudor quadrant. You could also add fairy lighting and LED candles around central well or simply light the four bay trees with warm glowing fairy lights.
The Banqueting Hall
We offer a perfect lighting package for your band or entertainment. This includes up lighting around the room, which really helps enhance the unique period décor, from the stain glass window to the Tudor wood panelling. Moving party effects that project onto the dance floor from the Minstrels Gallery add atmosphere while you are all dancing.
The Minstrels Gallery is one of the main focal points of the Banqueting Hall. We can offer a selection of looks to enhance this, from our popular fairy light cascade (with or without pom-poms), to our vintage hanging lamps depending on your style and tastes.
The Long Gallery
The Long Gallery is an exquisite room that needs very little in the way of enhancement. The fresh white wooden panelled walls can benefit from some ‘warm glow’ up lighting. This really helps transform the room in the evening when people are relaxing with a drink or their evening buffet.
For a simpler look maybe you could consider clusters of Luminara candles to line the fireplace and window sills.
The Sky’s The Limit
This just gives you some inspiration but really the ‘sky’s the limit’ when it comes to lighting and décor for this stunning venue. A full list of services are listed in the brochure, any ideas or concept you may have, drop us a line and we can chat further.
We have our own dedicated brochures for these services that can be viewed on the links below.
